Can the Data Doctors checks be extended to identify corruption in the database?

For example, see this question.

Can the errors database add a new kind of error for when the database of Wikitree has been corrupted?

Some of those kind of errors are already identified in the suggestions report which is updated once a week. Examples ...

201 father is self

207 father is also a child

208  father is also a spouse

209 father is also a sibling

Etc.

Yet, it did not find this error:

http://wikitree.sdms.si/function/WTWeb/Suggestions.htm?UserID=194145

I think the code needs to be expanded to look for listed profiles that are redirects.  In this case, a half-brother was shown as Truitt-10, but that link was redirected to Truitt-9.

There should be no connections to redirected profiles, the connections should always be to the current profile ID.
